Citylife Community Dinner: Entrepreneurship

We are having our second Citylife Community Dinner next Friday, May 26 at WeWork South Station! The featured speaker will be entrepreneurship. Paul Jin, a Citylifer who is at the Chestnut Hill campus, has agreed to share with us about startup success and failure, and what God has meant to him personally as he has dealt with all of these.

Paul Jin is the CEO of Silicon Micro Display, a small semiconductor chip technology company. Paul has been an entrepreneur since 2009. He earned a BS in mechanical engineering from Boston University and an MS in materials science from UC Davis. Paul spent the first 10 years of his career at Sandia National Labs, a national security lab, and the second 10 years at Philips Medical Systems leading the ultrasound business for international middle markets. Twenty years after working for the man, Paul decided to pursue his consumer content to e-commerce business in 2009. In 2011, Paul joined his current small company focusing on virtual and augmented reality hardware technology. In the process of becoming an entrepreneur, Paul managed operations at the Cambridge Dogpatch Labs, a start-up incubator, for Polaris Ventures from 2010 to 2012. Paul lives in Newton and has attended Citylife since 2007.

April 24 – The Importance of Networking

For a lot of people, networking is an uncomfortable topic. It's easy to see networking as being mercenary. The reality is that when done right it's far different than that. In fact, Jay Lee recently wrote about my experiences networking on the blog.

The goal of this meeting on Sunday, April 24 is to discuss this topic and hopefully see how networking is an organic and important tool for you. We hope to be able to sit around a table and have lunch, and have a friendly conversation. If you have questions, differing opinions, or are even opposed to networking, we'd love to get to know you and have a conversation and see if we can come to a shared vision for networking.

We're hoping to meet once a semester as a larger group, so this will be our Spring 2016 meeting.
